3. Weight loss

If your dog is suffering from chronic diarrhea and is losing weight despite a normal or increased appetite, it is possible that he has SIBO. SIBO is a type of malabsorption syndrome. This means that a dog with SIBO cannot properly absorb the nutrients from his food due to the interference with the digestive process. The result is weight loss, which can be especially dangerous for small, young dogs.
